WYFF: Police: Asheville Firefighter Shot Bicyclist

Officers said the victim was riding with his wife and had his 3-year-old son in a child seat attached to his bicycle when a driver approached him.

Police said the driver, Charles Diez, claimed he was upset that the victim was bike riding with his child on the heavily traveled Tunnel Road.

Diez pulled a gun and opened fire, hitting the victim in his bicycle helmet, according to police.

And the bicyclist, amazingly, survived without even being hit by the bullet. Whatever brand of helmet he owns, I want to buy it.

On Monday, they confirmed he has been placed on paid investigative leave pending the outcome of this investigation.

Well, we wouldn't want him to be out of money to buy more bullets, would we?
